Base of operations: South Africa
Our mission is to share our passion for South Africa with you. We prefer to do it in such a way that you really get to experience the amazing hospitality, the diversity of the different regions and the flavors of all the local delicacies. All of the above in the most sustainable way possible.
Personally inspecting hotels, guest houses and lodges, driving the itineraries, dining at the restaurants, walking the trails, sailing the courses and experiencing the country is the only way we know how to keep abreast of what is happening in the tourism industry. In this way we are able to inform you, the guest, in an honest and open way about the journey that you are about to make. We don’t believe in selling a trip from “behind a desk”. Jessy prefers to work with small, intimate lodges and guest houses of which the owners are actively involved in daily operations.
About the founder: The company was started in 2004 by Jessy Lipperts begin,a Dutch national, whose passion for South Africa was ignited on her first trip over to this rainbow nation. Giving up everything in The Netherlands to begin the company in Cape Town, it has steadily grown from strength to strength. In 2017 Jessy embarked on a transformational leadership program to assist under-resourced schools in the Cape Town area (80% of schools in South Africa are under-resourced and the education system is one of the worst in the world). Together with her adopted daughter Rosie Grace, Jessy runs a soup kitchen in her area each Saturday morning for all the homeless people. Together One World and Be the change you want to see in the world are her mantras.
